“Great staff and hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

The staff was amazing. There's always someone (or many) people available to help you with whatever you want or need. We chose the wedding suite so we can have a good amount of space. The room was decorated in a very Chinese style. The hotel is located down a narrow street, but even at night, we felt safe. There's a police office on the same alley. The closest subway (Dongsi) was about a 12-15 minute walk from the hotel. Be aware, in Beijing, if it looks close together on the map, chances are, it's still far away. If you're limited on time, take the metro or taxis. Taxis are the same price for the first 3 km and really cheap. We missed out on a lot of stuff because we tried to walk it (being New Yorkers) and taking a lot longer than expected. The breakfast was a mix of Asian and western food. It wasn't huge, but certainly a lot of options.
Also they were clean rooms and a renovated bathroom. The heat isn't strong but keeps room warm.

Just like to confirm all the positive remarks from previous reviewers, absolutley authentic experience, amazing staff. Wonderful rooms, minibar extremely cheap, couldn't get over how low the bill was when leaving. They organise all your tour needs etc... breakfast was fantastic, we found the hotel easily using public transport from airport, get the airport express to dongzhimen, chnage to line 2 one stop to yonghegong lama temple - then change to line 5 for 3 stps to donsi, take north exit out of metro station, turn right at the road and walk for 1 - 3 mins take donsi sitiao alley and walk down 3 - 4 mins and hotel is on left just past the police station.
I would only recommend the metro if you don't have too much baggage as the can get pretty full.
Hotel is walking distance to Wangfujing shopping street and outdoor food market, emperor's palace and more. Enjoy.

Set in the alleyways of Beijing (where you see daily life of Beijing unfold on the street) about 8min walk from the metro is this really friendly courtyard hotel. I stayed 2 nights and wished it were more.

Set in the courtyard with winding outside corridors and stairs, my room (got a free upgrade from single to double) looked really elegant. Outside and in the courtyard it is snowing but the room is warm in all sense of the word. Traditional tea service, stone bathroom, comfy bed and oriental images all around. 2 free bottles of water per days also a nice touch.

Bar is cosy and breakfast sufficient (including dumplings). Staff are really friendly and helpful (they even took me out to a bar after their shift).

If I were coming back to Beijing, without hesitation I would book here rather than a giant, chain hotel.

Very well located in the city overall. Very friendly staff. American/continental breakfast. Small but very equipped rooms. Place has its own cozy, social bar. Dinner food was clean and good. Only negative was - the hotel is in an alley and its almost a mile walk from main road. Also note, Its not a Hyatt or a high end hotel. No fittness center or pool.

I arrived after midnight and in less than 10 seconds the staff welcomed me at the door. They arranged a trip for the Great Wall and I received the breakfast with me. I will definitely miss their staff. A PC is in the room if you don.t have one with you

Hotel features and hotel staff were simply amazing.
Its not a fancy big western hotel not even 5star but seems like a 5star for me. Tripadvisor says it. The hotel really deserved to be a top in Beijing. Service was excellent, special mention to Jimmy who is always at the bar. He speaks well in english, smiling all the time, accomodating, creates conversation, overall a wow service as this hotel lets you feel like you are home.
Rooms are just of enough size, not really big but well interiored and very clean.
Room amenities are complete and set everyday.
Food was also tasty and awesome.
The restaurant offers a wide selection of chinese and western buffet.
Drinks at the bar are on a reasonable price.
Will definitely be back and recommend this hotel.
Great Job Double Happiness

The double happiness was in a great location near the subway, 10 minute walk. The hotel staff were so nice arranging pick up from airport and transport to airport when we left. The breakfast had a wide variety. The staff were wonderful with our children, playing with them and giving them sweets.Every staff member was helpfull and all spoke english very well. The staff organised our train tickets to Xian before we arrived and we also went on a tour to the great wall with the tour group the hotel arranged for us,which was very good.The heating in the rooms kept you very warm and it was very homely. There is a big shopping centre next to the subway and Mc donalds where you can purchase items needed. I would definetly recommend staying here, we stayed for 11 nights in total. We also left two bags with them when we went to Xian and they had no problems with looking after them for us. The staff are all so caring and i wish them the best.
